AXIWI® wireless soccer referee headsets

Soccer referees must communicate as directly as possible with his assistant referees (AR’s) to lead the soccer game in the best way. Without a wireless headset, good verbal communication is not possible due to the distance, surrounding noise, and game speed.
With the AXIWI® AT-350 headsets, you now can communicate fast and comfortable with your colleagues. You do not miss anything, and it helps you lead the match in the best possible way. The referee headsets have a perfect sound quality and are very affordable compared with other headsets in the market.

Soccer referee coaches are using the AXIWI® referee headsets to train starting soccer referees and guide talented referees. Training courses and games ensure a demonstrably faster “learning curve” for the football referees. They are coached “at the moment”, and can apply the referee coach’s tips directly in the field.

BLOG: 5 Tips for effectively using a communication system from Soccer (Assistant) Referee Michael Osseweijer

In this blog I will try to give you some tips and trick for using a communication system in an efficient and effective way, improving your performance during the game.

AXIWI®also the solution for soccer observers and referee academies

The challenge of coaching referees (from the sideline on the sports field) without headsets limits you ineffective communication and coaching of the referee. An observer can coach and support the young soccer referees directly during the game with a communication system. Coaching with AXIWI® is not limited to halftime, before or after the game. This way, the referee observer can give now tips about positioning and running lines, from the sideline. Because of this, the young and talented referee learns fast about how to position optimally. As a result; they will get more confidence and develop their skills more quickly.

03-09-2020 I am using the AXIWI headset for both recreational and professional use. It is really comfortable to wear, especially during my afternoon runs. I love that I can listen to music and hear it when someone is ringing their bicycle bell behind me. The best part is that it is so minimalistic and stays on your head, no matter how your body moves.


AXIWI® Referee Academy
